A trip to the cinema is one of the most expensive leisure activities out there. Tickets, especially for new releases can be as much as £25 per ticket! Thankfully this post will be about how to get free cinema tickets, often for pre-released films! Now you can enjoy the cinema on the cheap.

What is Free Cinema?
Free Cinema is a site which offers free viewings for new films. You get sent a newsletter through email and whenever they have a new film to view, they’ll send you a code. Last week I watched Fisherman’s Friends which is only being released on the 16th March!
Here’s a trailer of it if you’re interested; I really enjoyed it!
Is it a scam?
No, not at all!
I have been subscribed to their newsletter since 2016 and have never needed to pay to go to the cinema since! I just go when I get a ticket. It’s amazing because it’s always films that are not yet released so you’re one of the first as far as people to ever view it in the country!
As far as I can recall, I’ve seen the following films but there’s probably many more!
- The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
- Saving Mr. Banks
- Eddie the Eagle
- Fisherman’s Friends
How do you get tickets?
When a code is sent to you in your inbox, just apply it in the link they provide in the email.
You’ll then see a list of all the locations available. Some locations aren’t always available, but the bigger cinemas are often always available. You then simply reserve tickets, up to 2 per person (but if you have more than one account per household you can still apply).
You will then receive a confirmation email with your e-ticket which you’ll have to show at the cinema. Some cinemas may be stricter than others, so make sure you read the conditions and bring iD just in case.
Let me know if you see anything using Free Cinema!
